Comments about Abbeyfield House

I have been involved with Abbeyfield for 2 years as a volunteer. i was asked to take responsibility for maintenance of the house by doing easy DIY jobs and contacting trades people for bigger jobs, I thought I would have satisfaction form keeping the house in good order, but to my surprise the best thing has been becoming part of the team, getting to know and enjoy the company of our residents and being able to have a laugh and a joke with them. It is a privilege to be involved.03/09/2016David (volunteer)reply
